Time to Write the SF Story

Damn, I didn't even realize you could skew it this way. But you can:

"Doctors or other health care providers could not be disciplined or sued if they refuse to treat gay patients under legislation passed Wednesday by the Michigan House.

The bill allows health care workers to refuse service to anyone on moral, ethical or religious grounds."

What happens when Jewish/Muslim/Athiest doctors decide they don't want to administer health care to Christians?

Bet they'll nip that in the bud real fast.

Sorry, people: you go into health care, you help people. Everybody. That's the job. That's why we have a Hippocratic oath.

Good point regarding denial of care to Christians. This kind of state sanctioned discrimination is really scary, especially when morality is used to justify it. Fuck, a new day - a new something to be enraged by.
